Whenever there’s an argument to verify facts, the popular term mostly being used is “don’t stifle your conscience”. Looking at the actions of people presently as election is merely days away, I am mesmerised at their attitudes or their thinking.
For starters, with the election marketing strategy, flags and billboards are among the main ingredients that are used – billboards being the biggest option for those in government, while flags are more prevalent. Traveling all over, from a distance you will notice the flags (mostly of the two main contesting parties), waving/blowing gracefully with the wind as you pass without a problem.
Seeing party flags in a somewhat straight line gracefully blowing with the wind is beautiful to look at, regardless of the party.
Lo and behold, ignorance overtakes the architects of the late comers and the very same spot that houses a flag is the ideal place for them to put theirs, bigger or smaller is not the matter, but that exact spot.
These ignorant persons would find this the best placement for the flag of the party they are representing; the most convenient spot, thus two fabrics are placed to battle for supremacy.
I’ve noticed the larger ones always suffer the most damage. My point is, despite the various flags, once they are lined properly/in sequence, it makes the area look beautiful. Why has ignorance overtaken us? That simple move makes foreigners think negatively of us and also motivates fools to do more arrogant things. Those actions show that we in Guyana will never be right thinking, we will always be divided.
Editor, my observation above is my personal opinion, and it doesn’t end there. I’ve sacrificed and lost a lot, worked a lot to help this present administration get into power. Before the last general election, I was communicating with many people from the PNC, AFC, JFAP, giving pointers, advice on topics, hecklers and places people need to see them so that they could get an sense of confidence. However, miraculously, immediately after the announcement of the winners, these hypocrites conveniently didn’t seem to receive my messages or find the time to reply. Traversing around, many that know me were surprised that I’m still unemployed. My response is that I wasn’t that much interested in rewards, but my ideas that I’ve used to mention to various persons and ideas I even wrote about are never considered. As a result, I got very disappointed because after many attempts. None was never considered, which I am quite sure would have made an impact.
Finally, as a result of my constant criticism, many whom I knew personally are very annoyed at me, and friends have been lost because I defended my actions and their rebuttal always is, ‘give them time’.
I cannot give any administration that has mostly experienced and elderly people and former ministers time, when their first duties were to reward themselves huge salaries, embark on a spending spree to beautify offices, buy luxury vehicles to travel in, impose heavy taxes on the nation, including pensioners, take away the benefits that was in place by the previous administration, create massive unemployment, and more importantly, neglect the youths with their promises.
After four years, coming into power with a manifesto full of promises, this administration failed to even deliver on one, and again, another manifesto appears with more promises. Should we believe or live in hope with these new promises? No!
Based on their record, they are not to be trusted because all that occurs under them are massive allegations of corruption, victimisation and making wrong decisions that affect all Guyanese. They are bad managers, and they don’t care, because they have benefitted while ruining Guyana.
Guyana had many resources before the announcement of oil discoveries and looking on presently, they have all been neglected. The same has happened to our neighbour, Venezuela. Do you see a pattern? We could change that by doing the right thing.
Forget race, just don’t stifle your conscious. Everyone joins to celebrate Mashramani, why does election have to separate us?
